According to some new whiz-bang scientific study, our long-term memories may be more powerful than previously thought. So just how far back can YOU remember?


Yeah, that's me in that picture, along with a very young version of my mom and dad. (And dig that sweater, dad... nice!) Anyway, seeing as it's also Throwback Thursday today and this picture popped up on my Facebook feed, both of these things got me thinking about the oldest thing I can remember.

While scientists in THIS article say our long-term memories are way more powerful than they first thought, I can't say I have any recollection of when that picture was taken. I'm guessing I was about 5 or 6 months old then, which is still pretty young to have any accurate memories.

Now while I don't have any memories of being that young, as I'm guessing you probably don't either, but I do seem to remember my dad hooking up the headphones for me listening to some classic Statler Brothers songs (Flowers On The Wall, anyone?!?) on an old reel-to-reel tape recorder, when I was probably around 3 or so.

And I do have many memories of when my younger brother was born, and I was 4 years old then.

What's YOUR first memory?
